Fischer Regent Coin-Op Pool Table Restoration Project


Fischer Regent Coin-Op Pool Table Restoration Project

Sharing some photos of a coin-op Fischer Regent pool table that I completely rebuilt and restored in late 2019. It took about 3 months.

  • The first gallery below has the "before" photos.
  • The second gallery has the work-in-progress and "after" photos.

I think it is from the 1960s, but not totally sure.

The hardest part was rebuilding the ball drop/coin op part as the face is made from that horrible particle board. The sides are decent plywood and make a good pattern.


Fischer Regent Coin-Op Pool Table Restoration Project - Before

The original pool table as it was when it arrived home at my place. Sometimes I wonder why I do what I do. I always see the potential in something's maybe because the potential in an object is more real than the potential in people.

Replacing Cushions on Fischer Regent Pool Table

I needed to figure out the right kind of replacement cushions for a Fischer Regent pool table. It wasn't going well until I realized the type was printed right on the old rubber. U-23 is the profile.
